Hill House features delicate sliding shutters with traditional Russian saw-cut carving

The organic topography of the hill area prompted the architectural concept of this house in Russia by Horomystudio. Therefore, the lower floor appears as a hill extension and includes a garage, storage and utility rooms. All the main living spaces are located on the second floor, which commands the most picturesque view of the forest with a creek. Local natural materials were prioritized for the construction. The exterior is coated in unique black stone from the Karelia region, called gabbro-diabase. Natural oak was chosen for the interior finish. Delicate sliding shutters for the windows, with traditional Russian saw-cut carving, were added to emphasize its rustic style.
